Stage North: Almost Maine

March 6, 7, 13, 14 – Almost, Maine

A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. These playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of John Cariani’s Almost, Maine, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers.

Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, Almost, Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery

This will be performed as a dinner theatre as a fundraiser for the Fort St. John Rotary Club.  Tickets will be available soon.

Addam’s Family Auditions

America’s first family hits the stage this fall but only if we get your help.
Stage North is holding open auditions for The Addams Family: A New Musical on Friday May 31 and on Saturday June 1 at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
You are invited to come and try out to be a part of the production.
We are looking for actors, singers, and dancers. There will also be a couple of roles for children (11 years and older).
We will provide script samples to read from but would love to hear you sing as well. Please have a song prepared for the audition. If you can’t think of a song, you can always use our national anthem as your audition song.
Got a special talent that you think would work well for this show? We’d love to see it.
Also, if you are not interested in being on stage, we are also looking for carpenters, painters, running crew, costumers, and more. We will take your information at auditions as well.

Between the Sheets

After a long day of parent-teacher interviews, grade three teacher Teresa is wrapping up her day when one last parent drops in. Marion is a very busy woman, balancing work and family, and she is concerned about her son’s education. Through their very intense discussion, we learn that there is a deeper concern beyond the report card; Marion is suspicious of the communication between her husband and Teresa over the school year. This drama will have you grappling to choose a side between each woman’s morals, views on love, and their ideas of a lasting relationship.

In a time before Facebook and Netflix, Agnes Evans rolls through the 90’s, totally average, until her family dies in a terrible car crash. Agnes finds herself alone, with a Dungeons and Dragons adventure that her geeky little sister Tilly left behind. When Agnes recruits a “dungeon master” to walk her through the campaign, we dive into a world of supermodel elves, warrior demons and other D&D monsters. Agnes learns how to fight, how to heal, and discovers the sister she never really knew. She Kills Monsters is a geeky comedy, full of professionally trained combat, that relays the importance of empowerment and acceptance.
